Recent Skaneateles property reviews

  • Heavenly Place!

    "This was our second stay at this cottage and boathouse and we certainly hope it will not be our last. It is just such a beautiful place that it's hard to even describe. The cottage is clean and comfortable and the bathroom and kitchen are perfectly comfortable and everything you need is right there. You can grill right outside the door and the patio is there with the table and chairs and what a view! The historic boathouse is so very special and the deck is amazing. We just love it and can't wait to return. The neighborhood is so beautiful and it is just a short, idyllic walk to town. We can't wait to return!"

  • Incredible Wedding Weekend!

    "We came here as a group for a friends wedding, which was in the area, for the weekend. We arrived on Thursday evening and departed on Sunday afternoon. What a place! The house is situated right on the lake. Literally on the lake. There is a dock that you can walk out on which must be about 80 feet long. The place has endless character. From the paintings and decorations to just the overall feel of the place. We sat outside one night in the rain, on the covered porch in rocking chairs. We woke up each morning and built a fire around the fire pit, down by the waters edge enjoying a cup of coffee. There is a huge living room with plenty of seats/couches to sit around. There is also a great downstairs with a bar, ping-pong table, pool table and couches/fire place. There is also a bathroom down there too. The bedrooms are neat and accommodating. I didn't want to get up and out because they were so comfortable. We played golf one day, as there were a few places very close by. Additionally, some of the group went to a vineyard, which was just down the block. At one point or another we all made it into town, which was only about a 5-7 minute drive. The house was in an ideal central location but still hidden and private. We had ZERO problems while we were there. The owner is a great guy and I would strongly recommend this place for a short or long trip during any season. I know a group of us will be back again to this very house because we enjoyed it so much. We are grateful to the owner for sharing this wonderful place with others."

  • Gene

    "We had a wonderful week with everything we looked for in a camp. The cottage was clean and true to the pictures/description as shown. It would have five stars were it not for the 30+ steps to get to the boathouse and water. Nevertheless, having kayaks, a canoe and a rowboat made the trek worthwhile even for guests in their seventies. We would recommend you bring your own life vests for your children which we did. The water was clear with no seaweed which was nice. The kids enjoyed their hike up the creek, swimming, fishing as well the watercraft. The village of Skaneateles is great for food and shopping and a variety of activities. Jan and John were always very accommodating at a moments notice!"

  • Exquisite Home with Beautiful Lake Views

    "Walking into the rental upon arrival was breath-taking. It was so much more than we anticipated, especially with three comfortable but distinct interior areas for family gathering and relaxation. The exterior waterfront and lanai were lovely. All appliances are high end, the kitchen well-equipped and the linens fresh and plentiful. We enjoyed our stay enormously and appreciated the owner's communications throughout the inquiry, application and rental process."
